Upgrading Bus-Link External CD burner to DVDRW

#1

I am looking for recommendations or advice about upgrading my current Bus-Link USB 2.0 External CD-RW drive (model number UII-RW52) to a DVD-RW.
The current drive inside is a LiteOn model 52327s with the following interface specs;
ATAPI / E-IDE, support up to Ultra-DMA Mode2

Can anyone recommend specific DVDRW drives that will be compatilble? I am considering a used Sony DRU830A.

I don’t think very many people around here are really enthused about the choices available for IDE drives at the moment. Looking at the ones available at Newegg.com, there are two Lite-on’s I might consider, though I’m not normally a Lite-on fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106281

Since your question is about dvd drives, I’m going to move your thread to the appropriate forum, where you should get more informed replies.
